Watch the video of CEH’s recent visit to Youth Radio, to demonstrate some of our work for their Brains and Beakers event. Research Director Caroline Cox, along with Research Assistant Matt Nevins, showed students how they use an X-ray gun to test the chemical makeup — and safety — of fashion accessories and household items.Tags: chemicals in everyday items, lead poisoning, XRF testing, Youth Radio
